Feature #6: Saludos Amigos

The outbreak of World War II dried up much of the Disney Studios revenue streams. It also brought new worries for the United States, who feared that a South American country could choose to align itself with Nazi Germany. So the government asked Mr. Disney for a favor- take a heavily publicized tour of South America and make a film from it. The result was Saludos Amigos, the first of Disney's lower cost "package films".
